Launched in September 2015, Qarjuit Youth Council (QYC) is an ethnic, non-for-profit organi­zation, which represents over 4,500 dynamic and dedicated Inuit youth of Nunavik and Chisasibi between the ages of 15 to 35 years old. We exist to provide our youth with opportunities and knowledge in order to improve their quality of life, to empower themselves and to explore their full potential as responsible citizens and leaders. Our youth priorities are mental health, inuit identity, school perseverance and youth network.
